On Friday, December 8, 2017 at midnight the federal government runs out of money. While Congress and the administration are playing chicken with the federal workforce, AFGE is making calls, lobbying, and talking to the press about the importance of the work that you do.
Call your Senators and your Representative in Washington at (844) 669-5146, and at their District offices at (888) 775-3148 to tell them: we do our job serving the country every day. It’s time you do your job. No government shutdown!
Many of you will begin to receive Office of Personnel Management (OPM) guidance on the impending shutdown. We will keep you updated on everything you need to know as the deadline approaches. If we do enter into a government shutdown, we will host a tele-townhall on the evening of December 11.
In the meantime, call your Senators and your Representative in Washington at (844) 669-5146, and at their District offices at (888) 775-3148. Our voices and stories need to be heard if we are ever going to stop the cycle of Congress and the Administration playing politics with your job.
